Earlier this week, we all witnessed the complete and total implosion of Roseanne Barr’s career in real time after she made a controversial comment insulting former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett on Twitter.
Not long after the comments were made, the ABC network which just brought her sitcom “Roseanne” back for it’s 10th season, pulled the plug on the project’s second season, causing hundreds of people to lose their jobs.
Barr’s co-stars also took to Twitter to denounce the actress’s comments and distance themselves from the controversy as best they could.
Well, Rosie herself, in a series of now deleted tweets, has come out and described her conversation with Disney-ABC Television Group President Ben Sherwood.
“I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends,” wrote Barr in a series of tweets. “I begged them not to cancel the show.”
To make amends, she said she told Sherwood she’d do anything, including going on a publicity tour for weeks for free.
“I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. I’d worked doing publicity 4 them 4 free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis,” she wrote. “I begged 4 ppls jobs.”
“He said: what were you thinking when you did this? I said: I thought she was white, she looks like my family!” she wrote. “He scoffed & said: ‘what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable.’ I begged 4 my crews jobs. Will I ever recover from this pain? omg.”
“I also told Ben Sherman [sic] that I would go in hospital to check my meds, bc the stress had made them less effective. I begged like 40 motherf—–s,” she wrote. “Done now.”
Barr went on to state that ABC is supposedly replacing the reruns of her show with episodes of “Cosby,” noting this was “hilariously gross.”
There’s no official word on if that’s true or not, but if so, wow, talk about hypocritical and tone deaf. Yikes.
Roseanne also said that she was “ashamed” to think that her child co-star Jayden Rey might think she doesn’t like her because she’s black.
“The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew 2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American. It’s the most gawd awful painful thing. I can’t let myself cave in tho.”
The real issue isn’t that she was fired and the show cancelled, but the fact that ABC is completely and totally inconsistent with their espoused value system, which seems to be the case all across the entertainment industry, as people like Bill Maher, who made an even worse racially charged comment, are still employed.
All we really want is for these people to practice what they preach.

Good News! Miley Cyrus Promises Not To Procreate Until Climate Change Is Solved
This woman’s brain is a bag of cats.
One of the main problems with modern society is that all the stupid people in our culture continue to breed and then indoctrinate their children with their horrific, morally bankrupt worldview. Fortunately for all of us, actress and pop star Miley Cyrus has decided to forego procreating until someone finally steps up to the plate and does something to bring the crisis of climate change to an end. This is probably her best contribution to society at this point. via TheBlaze: In a recent interview with Elle, the former “Hannah Montana” actress said that she wants to wait to have children until said children could “live on an earth with fish in the water.” In addition to climate change and parenting, she also touched upon feminism and marriage. “When [Mother Earth] is angry, don’t f*** with her,” Cyrus warned. “That’s the way I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry.” “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women,” she insisted. “We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece of s**t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.” “We don’t want to reproduce because we know that the earth can’t handle it,” she added. Cyrus later went on to detail her marriage with Hemsworth. “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married,” she reasoned. “But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in…
Pop ‘Has Been’ Cher Melts Down, Claiming Trump will Put Gays ‘In Internment Camps’
Cher is at it again with another wholly unhinged tweet attacking President Donald Trump and his supporters
Cher is at it again with another wholly unhinged tweet attacking President Donald Trump and his supporters, this time with a new conspiracy theory insisting that Trump intends to put gay people in “internment camps” if he is-re-elected. The Half Breed singer’s tweet was in reaction to a BuzzFeed story reporting that Donald Trump has become the first U.S. president to recognize LGBTQ Pride month. But Cher was incensed by the president’s recognition of the month and hyperbolically accused Trump of looking to put gays in “internment camps.” “Trump’s 1st Republican Pres.2 Acknowledge LGBT Pride Month. IF trump WINS 2020,HE’LL BE 1ST 2 STRIP U OF’ALL’PROTECTIONS,& PUT U IN INTERNMENT CAMPS‼️HE’LL PUT HIS✋🏻ON UR SHOULDER & STICK HIS🔪IN UR BACK.🙏🏻WAKE UP & SMELL PAIN,HIS BASE WANTS U GONE,” Cher screamed on her Twitter account. https://twitter.com/cher/status/1134683265921478656 The BuzzFeed story came on the heels of a Friday announcement by the White House recognizing LGBT Pride Month. “As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation,” the White House statement read, “let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!” While Cher may have become still more unhinged due to her Trump Derangement Syndrome, a former leader of the GOP gay group, the Log Cabin Republicans, was enthused by the administration’s support. “Been waiting all my life for a Republican to show this kind of leadership,” Gregory T. Angelo, former president of the Log Cabin Republicans, tweeted on Friday. “THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP!”…
